Top Ten Tuesday: The Love Freebie!

Top Ten Tuesday: The Love Freebie!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book post created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. It moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. I don’t participate very often because I’m not very creative, but sometimes one of the topics will catch my eye! The topic for February 13th is: Love Freebie (Romances, swoons, OTPs, kisses, sexy scenes, etc.) Well, I don’t do romance. I don’t mind realistic romance in a novel, but I dislike novels that are…

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book post created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. It moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. I don’t participate very often because I’m not very creative, but sometimes one of the topics will catch my eye! The topic for February 6th is: Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read! TBR means “To Be Read” for those who don’t know the lingo. And…

Reading Wrap-Up: January 2018 Part Two

Reading Wrap-Up: January 2018 Part Two

Reading wrap-ups are a new thing to me. I haven’t done a reading wrap-up before this month, but I always enjoy reading everyone else’s. Plus, even though I keep track of my reading on Goodreads, this may help motivate me towards my 2018 reading goal of 50 books! Based on how this month went, I think I may need to modify that goal in the upwards direction. I don’t do monthly TBRs because I’m ridiculously spontaneous when it comes to picking…

Reading Wrap-Up: January 2018 Part One

Reading Wrap-Up: January 2018 Part One

I’m going to try something new with my book posts this year. I haven’t done a reading wrap-up before, but I always enjoy reading everyone else’s. Plus, even though I keep track of my reading on Goodreads, this may help motivate me towards my 2018 reading goal of 50 books! (Although at the rate I’m going, I won’t need much motivation.) I don’t pre-designate monthly TBRs because I’m ridiculously spontaneous when it comes to picking which books to read next….

Passing Time With A Chronic Illness

Passing Time With A Chronic Illness

When you have a chronic illness (or two, or three) sometimes you find yourself with some down time. Not necessarily because you chose this, but because your body decided for you. This is when it helps to have a hobby (or two, or three) to occupy yourself with. Ah, the flare. Every chronic illness has these days. You may find yourself holed up in the bathroom, flat on your back in bed, or huddled under a blanket on the couch. Flares…

August Book Haul

August Book Haul

It’s time once again for my monthly book haul post! All blurbs are from Goodreads. Clicking on the title will take you to Amazon, where you can purchase the book if you wish. (The last book is only available from the author.) These are not affiliate links. This month I only chose one book from Book of the Month. And it was finally a book I think I might actually read sooner rather than later. The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne…

The “What Cats Do” Book Tag

The “What Cats Do” Book Tag

If there are two things you should know about me by now, it’s that I love cats and I love books! And as a blogger, there’s nothing like a good book tag to have fun with when the rest of my brain isn’t working. A tag that combines cats and books is a rare treat! Thank you to Holly at Nut Free Nerd for this tag! Note: clicking on the book titles will take you to Amazon if you are interested…

The Book Titles Tag

The Book Titles Tag

What a fun tag! I found this one by Eden at Thrice Read. The idea is to answer the question with the title of a book. I decided to include books I’ve read as well as books on my TBR. 1. Title that’s the story of your life  Life Disrupted 2. Title that describes your perfect weekend  The Hiding Place 3. Title of an adventure you’d like to go on

July Book Haul

July Book Haul

All blurbs are from Goodreads. I picked two books from Book of the Month this month. The Child by Fiona Barton (2017). I’m not much into suspense novels, but this one sounds pretty intriguing. “As an old house is demolished in a gentrifying section of London, a workman discovers a tiny skeleton, buried for years. Journalist Kate Waters cobbles together a piece for her newspaper, but at a loss for answers, she can only pose a question: Who is the Building…

How I Choose My Books Tag

How I Choose My Books Tag

It’s hard to find a decent book tag out there that doesn’t make me want to cringe. Which is why I am so happy to have found this one! This is a book tag I picked up from Stephanie at Adventures of a Bibliophile and was originally created by Jenn at Thrice Read. Thanks for the creative ideas, ladies! Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover. What made you pick up that book in the first place? How…
